    Is there any way, when you post an image (i.e., the images in the Wildlife/Photos forum) that readers clicking on the image open a new window, thus when closing ("x"ing out) of the image, it returns them to the forum discussion page? I know to hit the "back" arrow, but usually I forget and end up clicking completely out of the homeowners site...

    when you click on an attached image, it should open an overlay over the existing page, and not open a new browser window at all. If not, your browser may have features like javascript disabled or something else. what browser are you using?

    Otherwise, it will open the image probably as if you followed a link.. where you can hit back to return. I don't recall if it opens to a new window or not.. its been forever since I've seen the 'compatiblity' mode vs the black gallery view you should see with a modern browser.

    That's dilemma...I DON'T want to have to hit the back button. I want to X out of the page and have it return to the forum discussion page...I realize it doesn't open a new window...I'm wondering if the programmers can have it open in a new window...no big deal to use the back button, it's just habit for me to click out of the page...

    first off... you shouldn't have to worry about this at all if you are using a fully capable browser. What browser are you using?

    If you don't use the gallery and want it in your own window, you can probably use your browser's 'open in new window' or tab functionality.
